From Apple TV+: Apple TV+ has announced “Midnight Family,” a 10-episode medical drama created for television by Ariel Award Winner Gibrán Portela (“Güeros,” “The Untamed”) and Julio Rojas (“La Jauría”), and executive produced by Pablo Larraín and Juan de Dios Larraín (“Spencer,” “A Fantastic Woman”), that marks its first all-Spanish language Apple Original series.

Currently in production in Mexico City, the new series will feature an entirely Hispanic cast and crew, led by Ariel Award Winner Joaquín Cosío (“Narcos: Mexico,” “Suicide Squad 2”), Renata Vaca (“Dale Gas”), Diego Calva (“Babylon,” “Narcos: Mexico”), Academy Award-nominee Yalitza Aparicio (“Roma”), Itzan Escamilla (“Élite”), José María de Tavira (“The Candidate”), Goya Award Winner Óscar Jaenada (“Hernán”, “Luis Miguel: The Series”), Dolores Heredia (“Capadocia”, “El Chapo”), Mariana Gómez (“The Queen of Flow”) and introducing Sergio Bautista.
“Midnight Family” follows Marigaby Tamayo (played by Vaca), an ambitious and gifted medical student by day, who spends her nights saving lives throughout a sprawling, contrasted and fascinating Mexico City aboard her family’s privately owned ambulance. Along with her father Ramón (played by Cosío) and her siblings Marcus (played by Calva) and Julito (played by Bautista), Marigaby serves a population of millions by tackling extreme medical emergencies to make a living.

Inspired by the award-winning documentary of the same name, “Midnight Family” will be produced for Apple TV+ by Fremantle and Fabula. The series is created for television by Gibrán Portela and Julio Rojas, and written by Portela. Natalia Beristáin (“The Mosquito Coast,” “Luis Miguel: The Series”) serves as showrunner and director. The project marks the second collaboration for Apple TV+, Fremantle and Beristáin, who previously directed two episodes of Apple Original, “The Mosquito Coast.” The hit series is currently in production on its second season in Mexico.
“Midnight Family” is executive produced by Pablo Larraín and Juan de Dios Larraín through Fabula, the production company behind Oscar-winning film “A Fantastic Woman.” Angela Poblete and Mariane Hartard as executive producers, and Peter Blake (“The Good Doctor,” “House”) serves as consulting producer.
The new series also joins a growing number of Apple Originals, including the upcoming English and Spanish-language thriller “Now and Then,” which will make its global debut on Apple TV+ on May 20; “Echo 3,” a new action-thriller set between South America and the US, and written by Academy Award-winning producer and writer Mark Boal; new stories from the multi-Academy Award and BAFTA Award-winning director, writer, producer, cinematographer and editor Alfonso Cuarón, who currently has an overall deal to develop television projects exclusively for Apple TV+ through his production company Esperanto Filmoj; and “Acapulco,” the  recently renewed Critics Choice Award-nominated Spanish- and English-language comedy series starring Eugenio Derbez, now streaming on Apple TV+.
